The Dave Matthews Band really only came into the mainstream music scene in 1994 with the release of its album, Under the Table and Dreaming. Dave Matthews, the band's lead singer and rhythm guitarist, blends a bit of rock with some blues in the band's music. Their lyrics are often mysterious and can be interpreted in many different ways.
Throughout the 1990s and 2000s, The Dave Matthews Band is one of the most widely traveled bands, having toured almost every summer. For that reason, they have a huge cult following, with some fans referring to them as the modern day Grateful Dead.
